It worked great for the first three videos I tried, but now it will not covert past 80% for anything. :(

Tube TV (http://www.chimoosoft.com/products/tubetv/) is a free alternative :)

Converting those low-res YouTube Flash movies to Quicktime (h264 or mpeg) makes the quality even worse. I prefer to collect the Flashs as they are.

You should get the free Perian codec collection to play Flash movies in Quicktime. [1]

To save Flash movies in Safari you don't need any extra software.

- Just open the YouTube page of the video you want.
- Open the Activity window (alt-cmd-A)
- Find the address of the video. The file size is about 500kb to 2mb.
- Select and copy the address (cmd-C).
- Open the Downloads window (alt-cmd-L).
- Paste the video address (cmd-V).

Then the download of the video will commence. The video will be in your standard Safari downloads folder.

Is there a tool or technique for downloading the h.264 versions used on iPods?
